Labor campaign spokesperson Jason Clare says Prime Minister Scott Morrison is “out of touch” when it comes to the cost of living crisis affecting Australians.
It comes after it was revealed the inflation rate had risen to 5.1 per cent in the first quarter of 2022.
“You’ve got interest rates knocking at the door next Tuesday, you’ve got inflation through the roof, you’ve got wages through the floor,” Mr Clare said.
“What did we hear from Scott Morrison about this today? It’s not my fault. That was basically what Scott Morrison said.
“Scott Morrison, you are out of touch and you are out of time.”
